When I first started sourcing a dozen or so years ago I remember the namby-pambiness of my sourcing. Afraid to rock the boat, I shied away from asking too many questions of my information sources, afraid I’d hear something that I didn’t want to hear. If I was on a trail I didn’t want that trail to end in a dead-end or even be broken. In the early days, I heard what I wanted to hear!
Soon I came to realize this wasn’t going to cut the… Continue

I have so many thoughts scurrying through my head this evening as the writer's pen beckoned to me yet again. A blog is so enlightening to see what is trully in your heart, and really define for you what matters more than anything. As my days at Solutions Partners have gone forward I have come to love and further respect my colleagues. They are full of incredible backgrounds, professionals of the highest ethical caliber, and possess a confidence and skill that make me sit back in… Continue

If you would be given a chance to create your own recruiters profile on Monster or any other job board, would you do it? The profile would be your page on that job board, with a number of customizable elements like the profile on RecruitingBlogs.com or LinkedIN has.
How about being able to create groups, to link the people in your company, or with your interests. How about job hunters being able to create the profile on the site as well, with various levels of the content published… Continue

OK, so this title isn’t nearly as cool as the title of the article I want to talk about: How to Headhunt the Headhunters, by Tara Weiss from Forbes.com. But, that’s the way it goes. The article got my attention and it has some great information I want to pass along to you.
First, don’t just send your resume out indiscriminately. I get the concept of “flooding the market” with your info, but it just doesn’t work.
What does work? Find a recruiter who specializes in your… Continue

It's so simple, and so few candidates do this. And the higher up the management chain the candidate is, the more effective they can be using this strategy. Interestingly, the higher up the management chain the candidate is, the LESS LIKELY they are to actually do this! It's such an easy way to stand out, such an easy way to get priority and additional help from recruiters.
But you've got to adopt a different paradigm - Flip your old way of thinking 180 degrees.

Searching within LinkedIn groups' members is limited to keywords only. If you search from within a group it may take a lot of time to sort out the results. However there is a way to do an advanced

Here is an example.
